    I still swear by Heavyocity Evolve and the two Evolve Mutations libraries, although I recently snagged Gravity and that one's specially-made for stings and risers, sounds insane. And the Symphobia libraries are great for laying down huge orchestral beds, horn falls and big drum hits. If you don't feel like installing huge libraries, I also found a few small Audia Imperiola libraries that are decent for hits and whatnot.

    Never tried that one, but I believe it's just a streamlined version of the Symphobia series. Don't know if it has hits or risers, or if it's just strings and horns, etc. It might be worth checking out!

    Don't listent to their comments. They are just guessing, but they don't have any real trailer experience obviously.

    Check all Audio Imperia plugins, Evolution Dragon (golden mine), Impact Soundworks Juggernaut, Boom Library Trailer Hits, 8Dio Hybrid Tools II, Synphony Opus 1 and Epic Toms, Heavyocity Damage. That is enough for drums and sfx.

    For orchestra get Metropolis ARK I, Cinematic Studio Strings, Cinebrass CORE and PRO. For choir get Strezov Storm Choir and you are good to go.

    @Aurevoir I lol'ed, on your "don't listen to them"... If you are skilled enough, you could compose with fart samples and make epic track... Every library is good library as long as it suits your vision of composition.

    Not really. If you are not a sound designer, you need specific libraries for something that specific like trailer music. And believe me, it is very specific with very strict rules. If you ignore these rules and specifics, you won't most likely license your track.

    For fx (hits, impacts etc) I am really impressed with Cinematic Trailer Designed by Boom library as well as their other. Quality work. Caution: keep volume as low as possible. Check this out.
    Pretty much everything is already been mentioned. Hybrid Elements is also a good one for trailer-ish hits etc. Also collect some white noise fx. Generdyn gives away quality samples too but I have heard them being used everywhere -you can also have them for free. Finally one left which is mine :bleh:. I have my own whooshes, hits, impacts, sub booms etc and with some practice you can also make your own assuming you are just starting.

    tbh most trailers nowadays seem to be sharing the same template to create all the shitty fx and risers people have learned to like




    Usually it starts with a few lfod saw farts, while some neurotic riser is playing in the background

    There are plenty of libraries, you should better look for yourself because the list can be pretty extensive.
    For 'classic' cinematic stuff (impacts, FX, drones and stuff like that) check some Native Instruments libraries, as well as Heavyocity, Sample Logic, Zero-G, Audiomodern, Audio Imperia, but there are much more out there.
    For orchestral related I'd go for Orchestral Tools stuff and/or Spitfire Audio ones, they have several but you could choose whichever suits your thing.
